To Sneaker, Or Not To Sneaker?

That WAS the question…

Whether you call them sneakers, trainers, or runners/running shoes (I’m looking at you, my fellow Canadians!) I have never really been a ‘sneakers’ kinda girl. Besides the fact that I hate closed in shoes, not to mention, my disdain for wearing socks, I’ve never found a pair that felt like, well… Me… Until I stumbled upon these Nike Roshe Run Sneakerboots, in none other than, the men’s section on ASOS.com.

They. Are. Everything. Comfy, stylish, and *cue choir music from the heavens* basically designed to wear without socks!!!

Even though they are technically for boys, this girl’s new kicks are on fleek!

Note: men’s shoes are made larger than women’s – about 1 1/2 (US) sizes larger, more specifically. So, ladies, always remember to size down by a size and a half when ordering men’s footwear.

Here’s a quick shoe size conversion table which may come in handy if, like me, you ever find yourself enamoured with a men’s shoe that you just can’t live without:

Denim on Denim

Denim on Denim

Well, life has been a bit busy over this past week. It’s funny, because as I type the very words, I’m trying hard to figure out exactly what I’ve been so busy with, and I’m at a loss. It was nothing out of the ordinary, I suppose… Just life. But regardless, until now, haven’t found the time to actually sit down and write – but I’m back! And it’s time to talk about a couple of great new additions to my closet! Yay!

We are seeing a whole lot of denim on denim this spring, and it can be very chic depending on how you work it. Even the hubby is now the proud owner of a denim shirt! But I’m not feeling bold enough to rock it, head to toe, just yet, so, this great, sheer, cream color blouse with denim trim, paired with these fantastic acid wash jeans, (both from Penningtons) which I’ve folded under for a faux cropped appearance, create the perfect compromise! I’ve accessorized with my new Obi leather belt from Igigi, color blocked flats from Payless and a cute cuff bracelet from Forever 21 for a chic, laid-back look that’s perfect for casual Friday!
